at the left wing of the democratic party the last four years, conservatives under george w. bush, the base always has their heart broken. >> i don't necessarily dispute that. why has the romney campaign spent so much time trying to shore up that. >> i think romney had a unique disadvantage heading into the election he was always distrussed by the base of his party and he felt like he had to shore up that support before he could move on. with the left in obama, i mean they made a calculated gamble too they could not do some of the priorities whether on the -- >> after the election, not before. he's doing it before the election. >> but the gamble was that they would come back home, come re-election, i think by and large you're seeing that. >> we'll see. >> i have to tell you, i have never seen a political candidate repudiate their own base before election day. i understand once people get elected to the presidency different things present themselves and people get disappointed but before the election. i've never seen that. >> ask sister soldier about that, 1992, bill clinton decided to sort
in the debate preps with governor george w. bush in 2000, i did that. and governor bush's reaction was of course, he's not going to do that. that's ridiculous. >> but can he get things done? >> that's exactly what gore did. >> and i believe i can. >> did he practice a nod or did you just -- warn him he was going to physically approach him. >> i think the point is that governor bush was ready for it and that was not a high point for vice president gore. >> that's fascinating, that they knew gore was going to try to sort of physically approach him. >> that's right. as senator portman said, it's because he spent so much time studying al gore at the time, studying his debates with bill bradley's from the primaries that year. really invaded his personal space. >> it's all about research. we know how governor romney has been preparing the las couple of days. how does he prepare in these last hours or last day or so? >> we're told tonight he went to the cheesecake factory with his sons and some grandchildren. his aides say in the hours before what is critical for him is to get into the green room, to b
control. >> the numbers are wrong to begin with. we act redoubled our national debt under george w. bush. when you were working for him, i believe. the war in a iraq and afghanistan and bush tax cuts -- we doubled our spending under george bush. we continue to add during the obama years, but had to deal with the iraq and afghanistan wars and the bush tax caps -- cuts that were never paid for. the support president obama as are commanded -- commander in chief? do you believe he is the united states citizen? you accept the fact the columns of the christian? >>-- he called himself a christian? >> that was three questions. i will say, of course barack obama is our commander in chief. i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. >> to you believe in the? >> let him finish, please. you posed the question. >> i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. in recent weeks, we saw the tragedy of the assassination of -- >> let him finish. >> ok. >> they are simple questions. >> i.n.d. stand you would like to put meat on the cross examination stage. if you would like a -- >> i'll give you about 20
president obama than we were under george w. bush? would we be safer if we put mitt romney on? that's the question he raised yesterday. he said barack obama has put us on a danger course. no success we can point to particularly in the middle east. i think he has it dead wrong. how about you? first here is a little helpful reminder for some of you, and who isn't, struggling at the end of the month to make sure you can pay your bills. a way to get extra income at home, incomeathome.com. they know what they are doing and making you an offer that you can do. you can literally earn money from your own kitchen table, 24/7. all you need is a little extra time and the coaching from our friends at incomeathome.com. if you are sick of living paycheck-to-paycheck, incomeathome.com. at least check them out. they are giving away a thousand bucks to somebody. that person could be you. visit incomeathome.com. that is incomeathome.com. during the break i opened this piece of mail that i actually received the other day. i don't know whether you can see the envelope. it is addressed
george w. bush in 2004. john mccain in 2008 and michele bachmann and then mitt romney in this primary campaign. we asked brett o'donnell to join us today to talk about this week's debate and how both candidates need to recalibrate for the next one. the big i think it is fare to coming out of this debate is what happened to president obama. why did he do so poorly. obviously you were in the room but best guess what do you think his debate team failed to do to prepare him for wednesday night? >> three areas where you have to prepare a candidate. the first s they have to know the issues and policy on both sides. i think president obama s fine in that area. but the last two areas i think his team may have failed. the second is you have to have a strategy going into the debate to execute. and the final thing is you have to be mentally prepared. i don't think the president was really mentally prepared to take on governor romney and i certainly think that he was in shock when governor romney went on offense and stayed on offense throughout the debate and put the president on his heels and th
, more wars than president obama was by the failed policies of george w. bush which resulted in directly the greatest job losses since fdr. h is hot easy. in is hard -- this is not easy. this is hard work. >> we didn't hear in an hour and 20 minutes of debate anything about the stimulus package because if you look at the policy the trickle down government policy as the governor described it, they represented we would be below 6% unemployment now after spending all that money. the policies that this president put into place is actually made it worse including the fact that obama care is causing small employers not to hire because of rising healthcare costs. gas prices have doubled. the middle class is being buried under this administration. the vice president said it aptly and it is true. >> chris: let's turn to a couple of issues that came up during the debate. obviously the jobs report came out after the debeat. both sides saying that the other candidate is lying about h his position and let's start with taxes. governor, the president keeps saying that mitt romney is proposing a $5 tril
policies of george w. bush. which resulted in directly, the greatest job losses since fdr. this is not easy and it is hard work but we are moving forward. >> let's talk about policies. we didn't hear in the hour and 25 minutes of debate anything about the stimulus package. if you look at the policy the trickle-down government policy as the governor described it, they represented below 6% unemployment now, after spending all of that money and had full charge of the first two years and the policies that this president put into place, actually made it worse. including the fact that obamacare is actually... employers, it is causing them not to hire and gas prices doubled and the middle class is buried under this administration and the vice president said it aptly and it is true. >> chris: let's turn to a couple of issues that came up in the debate. obviously the jobs report came out after the debate. both sides said the other candidate is lying about his position and let's start with taxes. governor, the president keeps saying that mitt romney is proposing a $5 trillion tax cut. that is not tru
's got to do what george w. bush did in 2000 at one point in the evening and run the board. he's got to win all of these swing states. >> he does. the good news, it's headed the right direction. >> he can do it. >> absolutely. in late september, early october 2000, we were down three to five points. everybody said the campaign was completely screwed up. everybody should be fired. george bush went on to win all three debates, run the tables, as you've said, and turn it around and was up three. so it's absolutely possible. and i think this is big stakes. i mean, this is really an opportunity where people -- >> tonight is -- tonight is a huge debate. it really is. >> it's huge for all the obvious reasons. >> for the obvious reasons. >> but there's a lot of people that have heard a lot about romney and really haven't seen him. >> right. >> tonight they're going to get to see him all alone, mano a mano, and it's a real opportunity for them to get a sense of who he is, what he believes because they've just heard a lot. they haven't seen it. they're going to see it tonight. this is a real o
of george w. bush. >> one of the things both campaigns talk about is this is a possible advantage for governor romney because there is an elevated factor for him. he is on the same stage as the president. these debates to make an impression. sometimes they have a lasting impression. often, they do not. it is an opportunity, one of the few moments in the campaign, the conventions are another, but this is the last opportunity that both candidates have to speak to such a large audience at once. >> laura meckler, thank you for being with us. we have warren decker. he is from a university in fairfax, virginia. joining us from boston, a professor alan schroeder. he has 50 years of high risk tv. what makes a good debate and a good debater? >> i think the difference between a really good debate from my standpoint, intercollegiate debate, and debates we see at the presidential level is that a really good debate would be characterized by some depth of clash and arguments back and forth between the two. a lot of that is missing from presidential debate. the testing of ideas comes from that c
with. we act redoubled our national debt under george w. bush. when you were working for him, i believe. the war in iraq and afghanistan and bush tax cuts -- we doubled our spending under george bush. we continue to add during the obama years, but had to deal with the iraq and afghanistan wars and the bush tax cuts that were never paid for. the support president obama as our commander in chief? -- and do you support president obama as our commander in chief? do you believe he is a united states citizen? do you accept the fact that he calls himself a christian? >> that was three questions. i will say, of course barack obama is our commander in chief. i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. >> to you believe in the? >> let him finish, please. you posed the question. >> i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. in recent weeks, we saw the tragedy of the assassination of -- >> let him finish. >> ok. >> they are simple questions. >> i understand you would like to put me on the cross examination stage. if you would like a -- >> i'll give you about 20 seconds, then we will move on. >
actually make it faster. this is where the obama campaign sees their opportunity. george w. bush, obviously, his prime economic policy was a set of very large tax cuts. they did not have a very positive effect on the economy, even before the recession. it was a very, very weak expansion. and so governor romney has come in and he's proposed very, very large tax cuts again. and he hasn't wanted, in order to get away from the bush part, he hasn't wanted to explain them too much. in fact, paul ryan, his running mate says, the math is just too hard. but it really isn't. and i would imagine the obama administration, or obama's going to go through tonight, you really only need to know two numbers about romney's tax plan, one is $480 billion. that's the cost of it in 2015, just to pick one year. and the other is $251 billion. that's the amount that will go to very wealthy families. now, mitt romney's promise, his tax plan won't cost a dime on the deficit. so he somehow needs to get $480 billion out of the tax code by closing breaks and loopholes, seems like the mortgage interest deduction, and also
more gracious than president george w. bush except maybe his dad. >>neil: does this gal epaize the base in they think it is winnable, and karl rove says the numbers could be closer than we think. others say, neil, it is a big, big road to climb? >>guest: if it went the other way the conversation we would be having would be different talking about how do you salvage a campaign that is in complete ruin. now you talk about how to capitalize on a good night, some call it a great night, and go on from this. if you think of how it could have been completely different story, romney is thing they did a great job. juan williams is the only person in america who thinks obama won the debate least night. >>neil: he things obama won? >>guest: he said that this morning. even obama campaign thinks they didn't win. i don't know if he will continue on this baghdad bob endorsement. you have to watch that. >>neil: thank you. the eyes have it. long, long before others discovered mitt romney the feared c.e.o. we spotted it. it wasn't something he was saying. we were looking at something else. [ male announc
with george w. bush, which cost him a lot -- sign in and moaning throughout the debate the george w. bush, which cost compared the -- cost him the debate. if there are not a lot of those 47% comments that president running mate -- did i say president running? -- mitt romney? mitt romney apologized. host: let's look at tom and said governor romney made yesterday about the debate. -- that governor romney made yesterday about the debate. [video clip] >> there is a lot of interest, people want to know who will win, who will score, and in my view it is not winning and losing, or the people themselves, the president and myself. it is about something bigger than that. these debates are about the pathway for word for america that we would choose, and the american people will have to make their choice. i look forward to these debates. i am delighted that we will have three debates. he will be a conversation with the american people that will span almost an entire month. host: mitt romney on the campaign trail yesterday. we have seen the candidates talk about this low expectation game. howard kurtz
was homeland security advisor during the george w. bush administration, as we often point out, she currently serves on the cia's external advisory committee and recently traveled to libya with her employer, mcandrews and forbes. she had actually met with ambassador stevens. what do you make of the pictures you see of what arwa's talking about? >> as i listen to arwa, it just reinforces what we said last week and we've said from the beginning. investigators have to go there, even if you didn't have all the physical evidence there that arwa just described to our viewers, you would want to know from the witness interviews, anderson, you would want to know measurements, you would want to be able to take people through it to really understand what the dynamic was. but then you see things like handprints and blood samples. one of the things, the first thing you would do, i'll give you an example, that is you would take the blood sample off the toilet and the bidet and see whether or not it matched first to the ambassador's. did he fall? there's all sorts of things you would want to know. you know,
years go by and we still haven't gotten bin laden to read george w. bush said he doesn't think much about bin laden. in the interim we invaded afghanistan and invade iraq because cheney wanted to help out his buddies at brown and root and halliburton. and grab up all of the wheel. i think that they were worried about upsetting the saudi arabia royalty money. laughter kirsanow osama bin laden finally is gunned down by barack obama displaying great courage and intelligence. what more do you want to leave your country than that kind of courage and that kind of intelligence? [applause] >> our final offering tonight comes from hugo chavez's say the debate could favorite sycophant or as i like to call with his favorite busboy. if you are sean penn and you have something really asinine and you want to get out there, where do you go? that's right, piers morgan. mr. penn delivered one of the most asinine comments ever on television. can we call cnn national television any more? and even worse, she insisted that we know that this was -- ki insisted that we know that this is his original thoug
. >> the numbers are wrong to begin with. we act redoubled our national debt under george w. bush. when you were working for him, i believe. the war in iraq and afghanistan and bush tax cuts -- we doubled our spending under george bush. we continue to add during the obama years, but had to deal with the iraq and afghanistan wars and the bush tax cuts that were never paid for. the support president obama as our commander in chief? do you believe he is a united states citizen? do you accept the fact that he calls himself a christian? >> that was three questions. i will say, of course barack obama is our commander in chief. i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. >> to you believe in the? >> let him finish, please. you posed the question. >> i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. in recent weeks, we saw the tragedy of the assassination of -- >> let him finish. >> ok. >> they are simple questions. >> i understand you would like to put me on the cross examination stage. if you would like a -- >> i'll give you about 20 seconds, then we will move on. >> i wish she were a stronger commander
calling the president of the united states lazy. this man is republican worked for george w. bush, ronald reagan was in the white house ronald reagan of take naps during the middle of the day fame, he was president of the united states while john sununu was governor and he probably never would have said of ronald reagan that he is lazy. >> that's a really really good point you make. because you could legitimately say he did not prepare for the debate. >> certainly on style points. but when you take a look at barack obama substancively, the man -- this is a part of a right-wing theme that has been going on out there, mean, i hate that word but this is part of a right-wing theme that said that barack obama is not prepared to be president of the united states, he is the dumbest president of the united states i heard a woman say on the radio, and i think we know who the dumbest president of the united states was -- >> you don't have to go that far far back. >> i think to call him a dumb man is not credible. this is not the first time that john sununu did this.
reagan or george h.w. bush had had a terrorist incident and gotten on an airplane after saying something and flown off to a fund raisener las vegas, they would have been crucified. it would have been, it should have been barack -- equivalent for barack obama of george bush's flying over katrina moment. >> but nothing was said at all. and nothing will be said. >> with us now is mr. caddell. so you think this is an organized press suppression of this story? >> well, organized -- whether it's organized is a straight conspiracy, everyone is in on it and doing it and it's a purposeful conscious effort to suppress news that might help obama. we have gone down a slippery slope here. look, bill, we have had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. for many years. but it's gotten worse starting in 2008. now we have a press that actively engages in the re-election. putting out a narrative that romney is a loser, you know running polls, they are using like telling n.i.v. adding on romney. romney is not my issue here. not only decide to support obama on this issue the last two weeks, what
made up for all of the jobs lost under george w. bush -- made up for all of the jobs losted under president bush and adds jobs on top of that. there is no doubt about it that the president can take credit for creating jobs where mitt romney never did. the headline in the "new york times," obama's jobs number still beats his predecessor. 866-55-press. a long way to go still, unemployment is still too high. there are a lot of public sector jobs being cut because of budget cuts, but the private sector remains strong. manufacturing jobs are starting to come back and president obama bring jobs back to this country. the obama economy is working. it's just taking longer than any of us would like. the times last wednesday, this headline from the "new york times," auto sales, the highest in five years. the fiscal cliff is still looming, but those worries don't seem to be slowing down auto sales. autos flew off the hot at the highest rate in four years. 1.9 million cars, trucks and suvs sold in the united states in september, up 13% from last year -- then same period a year
debate in 1992, george h.w. bush deliberately looks at his watch and pays for it when the audience and voters see it as disrespectful. >> there are differences. >> reporter: body language makes a difference in a debate between al gore and george w. bush as well. gore sighs over and over again and bush surprises by winning the debate and the election. both president obama and governor romney are seasoned debaters, and expertes say neither are prone to making major gaffes. but if there is one thing that history has taught us when it comes to presidential debates, expect the unexpected. anderson cooper, cnn. >>> once again, the night is tomorrow, the president versus his challenger, face to face, special coverage begins at 7:00 eastern, right here on cnn and on cnn.com. >>> a lot more news developing this hour. watch this. america's top guy in afghanistan says he will not allow troops to be murdered. but do these insider attacks mean a change in strategy is coming? i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. >>> one pilot calls it embarrassing. seats coming loose on a major airline. is this
it reminded me of george w. bush in 2004, that they don't like somebody getting in their face, and mitt romney got in his face, and romney's command of the facts was really quite astonishing. his arguments as to the differences between obamacare and romney care, his indictment of the obama record on the economy, very impressive and there were points, and we've talked about body long, and i think we've talked too much about it where romney was always looking directly the a the president and the president was looking down, frankly like a kid being scolded. it was not a very attractive comparison from the president's point of view. martha: we are looking at the split screen and it does not do a disservice to everybody, it's what we saw over and over and over last night. let's play a clip when they talked about simpson-bowles last night. i want to get your thoughts on that. >> i have my own plan. it's not the same as simpson-bowles. in my view the president should have grabbed it. if he wanted to make adjustments do it take it, fight for it go to congress. >> that's what we've done, is we've made
unfavorable versus favorable numbers are the lowest in the nominee has had since 1992. that was george h.w. bush. you see the numbers in florida, virginia and ohio. in all three states, his favorable numbers are below 50%. and those 47% comments have certainly taken a toll on mitt romney as well. for people registered voters who were given a full description of those comments, after hearing that full description, 45% had a more negative view of mitt romney. 23%, a more positive view. >> you think the open was too sports centery? >> i liked it. >> good. peter alexander in denver. thanks so much for bringing our debate day power panel. now, we asked all of you in advance for your pointers for each of the candidate and we're going to put those up on the screen as we talk about this. so joy, i want to start with you. let's show the tips you have for governor romney about the type of performance he needs to deliver on. don't try too hard. don't get too snippy. this is a tall order. you are trying to see mitt romney cast that leadership vision and in an area where there's a lot of pressure. >> t
. he was the republican party nominee for senator from louisiana and president george h. w. bush was forced to come out and tell voters to vote for the democrat. i want to see mitt romney's feet put to the fire in much the same way. either cut this guy loose or defend him but mitt romney has to choose one. this new piece of audio is more damaging. this is a few months old. this is a piece of oughtio from a town hall meeting that congressman akin had. and an older male voter got up and asked him why he would oppose the lilly ledbetter act which promoted fair pay for women. todd akin's response is something that i think rand paul could have done more artfully but essentially, it's pretty much the most friendly endorsement of legal discrimination you will ever hear. let's listen. >> i believe in free enterprise. i think it is about freedom. if somebody wants to hire somebody and they agree on a salary. that's fine. however it wants to work. so the government sticking its nose in is a huge problem. >> john: the g
being in denial. >> we did not go through the decade of george w. bush and the last four years of rock obama, but what they have had to deal with, in fairness, is 9/11, a couple of wars that require a lot of spending, the tax cuts of george bush -- i am not sure where you stood on those, but they did eat into the amount of money we had to spend -- and then the recession, which was some say close to a depression. did that time prevent us from being able to make deficits and debt a top priority? >> it should not have. it could have, but it should not have come out if people were thinking clearly, if they were well educated, if they even understood this whole damn thing, which they do not. if you say what percentage of the american people understand this, i would say it is a very low number. it to be everybody, and everybody should say this is my country. people should be very active about not letting anything damaged our country. the one thing we have not mentioned at all, there is no question at all in my mind, if we keep going this way, some nation is going to head over here to take us
go back to when george w. bush was president of the united states and when gas was, what, 3 bucks a gallon, something like that? it was gigantic letters on the headline, the paper of the "new york times" where they were hammering it. now we've got a president where the gas has doubled. i think it was 1.85 when he took office. now close to 4 bucks. >> i think that we have seen, steve, an amazing propensity of the media to kind of put a very positive spin on some pretty not so impresssive economic news. >> steve: what is that? >> because maybe i think a number of us have been stunned by the extent to which this time at least headline writers seem to lean towards democrats. if you have headline about slow growth, you would expect to see that in the headline. but instead, you see a headline in the times or the journal about a stock surge instead. they did a study at -- aei did a study that showed 15% of the headline which is tended to be more positive given grim economic news and when you're talking about democrats. >> steve: the word is not getting out. >> they're cheerleading they'r
: you're thinking of george w. bush. >> wait one second. >> stephanie: chris, i'm sorry. you saw that where? >> caller: i believe it was on cnn. >> who took the survey? >> caller: i do not remember. >> probably find that out. >> by the way so you -- you don't think he's done a bad job but you think this vote is more important than your opinion? >> caller: i don't think he's done a great job. >> stephanie: how come mitt romney is so far behind in the polls? >> caller: i'm not a romney supporter. do not get me wrong. >> stephanie: i'm saying if he is the worst president ever, you would think he would be doing worse. >> what would you classify yourself as? >> anarchist. >> well then why are you even calling into a political show? >> because you don't care about politics. >> if you don't care -- >> caller: it is not that i don't care. >> you're just not involved. >> either way this election goes, it's not going to go well. >> why would you call in and care? >> stephanie: you're sort of pro general chaos is
to be commander in chief. >> mr. vice president, you have 30 seconds. >> well, i clearly believe that george w. bush would be a better commander in chief. he's already done it for four years and he's demonstrated without question the conviction, the vision, the determination to win this war against terror. he understands it's a global conflict that reaches from the united states all the way around the globe to jakarta. and those special quality -- qualities are vital in a commander in chief and i think the president has them and i'm not at all certain the opponent has. >> without mentioning them at all, explain to us why you are different from your opponent, starting with you, mr. vice president. >> i am different from john edwards. well, in some respects, i think probably there are more similarities than there are differences in our personal story. i don't talk about myself very much. but i've heard senator edwards and as i listen to him, i find similarities. i come from relatively modest circumstances. my grandfather never even went to high school. i'm the first in my family to graduate from
